I really hate running. I've always hated running. Every time I decide to give running a try (again), I think about how much I'd rather be biking, lifting heavy things, or doing anything else (except squats).

Ever wanted to hang off a big hog with your 24-inch pythons like our mate Hulk Hogan, brother? Of course you have, brother.

Now that we're almost two weeks into our plank challenge, you've probably figured out that some kinds of planks feel harder than others. Tiny changes in your body's position can make a big difference.
As someone who tries to find as many compelling reasons to actually go and out and exercise as possible, learning that I can earn frequent flyer points just by downloading an app certainly helps inspire me to get out and run (or, you know, attach it to a pet and rack up those handy, free points).

But what is the benchmark for a human being just trying to squeeze enough healthy exercise into their life? Let's break it down.
